just as a word of well-thought advice to you guys, don't spill hot tea on yourself. i'm totally serious. its very painful.
where did i come up with such amazing advice?
well, ill tell you.

i'm going to do a few mid-story interruptions, so as to fill you in on a thing or two.
the story will be in this color, the interruptions in this color.
just for fun.
today is sunday. a day i  go to church. so i wake up this morning against my will. (me and mornings don't get along very well. we usually have a fight about whether or not i have to wake up for it..) and me being me, i like to drink a cup of tea or coffee when i am awakened from blissful slumber. so i drag myself into the kitchen and sit at the table. i tend to sit crisscross, so thats how i sat. oh, and i also wear short shorts as pajamas. so i'm sitting there, half asleep, and thinking if i should move to get my tea. i decide not to, and ask my sister to make me a cup. just so everyone knows, i like to fill my cup at least 3/4 full of water. so she makes me a cup and sets it in front of me, but only fills it about halfway with water. i wanted to see exactly how much water there was, so i tipped it towards me to check. newsflash for myself. i shouldn't tip anything when i'm half asleep. lucky lucky lucky person i happen to be, the cup slips and i accidentally drop it. not on the floor, though. just on the table. and of course, the tea goes everywhere. especially on me. ok, it wasn't all over me, just on my legs. the parts of me that got burnt: left upper thigh. its small, and not too bad. left foot. also not too bad. right hamstring. its long, but also not horrible. and my right ankle. this one just so happens to be the worst one. it goes from the top of my foot (where foot meets leg) about 4 inches up, and all over the front, back, and inside of my ankle. it took me a second or two to actually realize that there was very very hot water on me!! so it registers, and i process the pain, and get up as fast as a hurt, half asleep person can manage. and also i say "OOWWWWWWW!!" it burned. badly. so i decided to make my way to the bathroom, so i could stick my legs into cold water. the water wasn't cold enough though, so i just concentrated on not screaming or crying, and breathing. it burned like crazy for ten minutes straight, but then subsided a little. my pops (dad) brought me some pain relieving cream, and i applied it. then put on a pair of soft, long socks, and went back to bed. at that point, the worst owie was burning cold. meaning it was freezing. so cold that it burnt. i managed to fall asleep, then woke up a few hours later. while i slept, the bad burn had acquired 3 blisters. all little, one slightly bigger than another. all right next to each other. they burned. so i looked up some burn remedies, and saw that honey is supposed to help. got some honey, put it all over the burn. it really neutralized the pain. so now i have honey all over my ankle, and my legs are nice and red in some places. ha. it still burns and stings a little, but its bearable. i hope i heal quickly, though i don't think it will take more than a few days. maybe a week or 2 at most.

heres a picture
the white is my sock. the shiny grainy stuff is the honey.
the bubble in the middle right... thats the bubble.
i decided that i must  write something to show how i feel.
so here it is, i'm making it up as i go along.
dearest Morning,
i truly hope you know how much you suck. you always want me to wake up when you come along. newsflash, you're not quite that special. i know you really love me and want me to spend quality time with you. but... i just don't share the attraction. i'm sorry. if this whole burning scenario is your way of getting back at me for not waking up whenever you're around, then you're cheap. for your information, if you do not remember correctly, i have been awakening before 12 for over a full week now. is that not enough for you?? do you must try and make my life miserable?? i mean seriously. do you really have to put me through pain to try to get me to love you? to be very honest, i do love you. id love to spend more time with you. but remember Insomnia? yeah, well that. most nights i'm fine for the most part, but Insomnia manages to creep over every few nights and keep me awake. i try to fight it, i tell it i'm tired, that i have to get up early. but it'll have none of it. it relentlessly keeps me awake. sometimes half the night, sometimes all night. so you see, its not entirely my fault.
i forgive you for putting me through this pain today.
and i'm sorry that i don't always get up for you. ill try to be a better waker upper when you're around. i cant promise anything, but i will make an honest effort. fair?
truly yours, Sweet Pea.

oh, and i'd very much appreciate it if you beat up Insomnia for me. i don't much like being kept awake into the wee hours. thank you.

even after this whole ordeal, i'm still going to work tomorrow. i was thinking about calling off, but decided against it. i love that place. ill just wear pants that don't touch the burn. or ill roll up my pants. either one should be alright.
thats my day for ya... how was yours?

i was scrolling through this thing..... my blog....... and came across my october issue. i mean post. it WAS the 8th, and i was still coming to terms with it, trying to get it through my head. it is now the twenty SIXTH, almost the next day, and im still stuck somewhere in august or september.
hey life??? SLOW DOWN A TAD, im not quite as fast as you!! im a mosey-er , remember??
im not liking this. this fast-paced-ness. it feels like time, and my life, are flying past at ridiculous speeds, and im just standing here trying to understand what exactly is happening =(

oh, i promised something about work. haha.
panera bread is my workplace, its a bakery-cafe. long story short, i love working there. what i do: make salads and sandwiches, pour soups, set up and align trays, and occasionally run the orders to the customers. restock everything that needs to be restocked, and basically be on my feet, moving around, for however long my shift happens to be. its hell on my feet (they hurt rrreeeeeeaaaaallllllllyy bad right now), but i love it just the same. im not sure why.
i get made fun of constantly. nonstop. im not even kidding. i think theres just something about me that compels people to poke fun at me, and make jokes about me, and laugh at me all the time, because people laugh at me all the time and everywhere, not just at work. i dunno. my cousin says that i just have a happy-go-lucky personality, and people with those are the most fun to laugh at. im okay with it, though. almost everything they say makes me laugh. which is a good thing, i think. at least im not offended. right?
i think perhaps the funniest part of my working is that i dont want to leave. honestly. i end my shift, and i dont even want to go anywhere. so i just hag around the counter and talk to the people that work with me because im not actually allowed to do any work if its not my shift time. isnt that ridiculous? i think its ridiculous.
my manager just about kicks me out every time. hahaha. here is a scenario of a day last week.

we'll call him "E"
E: okay, thats it, go home.
me: do i have to??
E: yes, you have to.
me: but i love it here!
E: say that again?
me: i love it here!!!
E: oooooookkkkkk.... weirdo
me: no, really. do i have to?
E: yes, you have to! go. shoo. get outta here.
me: uuuuggggggggggghhhhhhhhhh fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine.
E: *raised eyebrows*

he was probably thinking something along the lines of "that girl is seriously crazy or somethin....
hahahahha, its hilarious. at least to me.

goodnighto, everyone!

a short stroll through life

my darling sweetheart. heres what I've got to say. some advice, perhaps, if you will. or suggestions, if you want to call it that. or maybe, as some would say, "my message to you." but really, it's just a few things i want you to know. i want you to keep in mind. i want you to remember.
never take anything for granted. consider your alternatives, and weigh your options. hold your peace. let it go. take one step at a time. bite off only as much as you can chew. don't trust anyone, unless they have proven themselves trustworthy. write. read. draw. do what you think you cant. protect your soul. be slightly obsessed. be overprotective. sing. dance. take on the world. accept the bad with the good in life. expect the best. be prepared for the worst. release the past. jump on your bed. jump on someone else's bed. jump on the store's bed, just to "try it out." fix your hair. love yourself. work a miracle. take pictures. enjoy life. be spontaneous. walk through a fountain; right through the middle. sleep with stuffed animals. wait for a sunrise. work for what you need, and then work some more for what you want. lend a helping hand. don't pay any mind to age. learn to play with fire; safely, if you want. dream. go where your heart takes you. trust your gut. find a favorite. have a pillow fight. go crazy with your makeup. play sports. always be extra kind to the elderly, and the youngsters. don't use an eraser. make your bed. scream. enjoy life. don't be afraid to make mistakes. bring chivalry back to life. love a lot. give with your heart. don't cuss. have an appetite. brush your hair. run through a sprinkler. collect something. create a destiny. teach someone to read. teach someone something. think as much as you can. memorize, remember. visit memories often. do good to everyone. wear pj's all day long. give a hug, receive a hug. don't stop learning. actually, you look good in that. do not ever laugh at anyones incapabilities, ever. be different. analyze. listen. talk. communicate. wear random socks. life isn't easy, but it is worth it. overplay songs. run barefoot. skip. hop. find something amazing. keep promises. always pay up. build something. enjoy life. play dress-up with a closet, be it your own, your mother's, or a friend's. doodle. attend a tea party. host a tea party. just drink tea. pray daily. empty the trash. give out compliments freely, but sincerely. wear a studded belt. change things around. open a closed door. soften a hardened heart. melt a frozen heart. mend a broken heart. gain someone's trust. make someone smile. make jewelry, and then wear it. do your best in everything. work your butt off (even if its just once). enjoy life. trust God. set a goal, then reach it. then set another, and reach it. don't meet expectations, surpass expectations. respect everyone and everything. be random. play games. explore. take a million pictures. if you don't respect, then you have no right to expect respect. try new things. buy shoes. be the nicest person anyone has ever met. always have a shoulder (and perhaps a tissue) ready. talk to strangers. don't expect anything to be free. listen to great music. obsess over wonderful songs. cook. bake. rant and rave. expect the unexpected. it probably won't be perfect the first time. but if it is, consider yourself blessed. eat till you're full, but not more. love God with all your heart, soul, mind, strength. enjoy life.
